Wellington Girls College site building conditions have been reviewed. The poor rating from the Detailed Seismic Assessments (DSA) of the Tower and the costs and risks of refurbishment have resulted in a decision to demolish and replace. The Tower removal and replacement is on the critical path due to the seismic rating of several buildings on the site and the Wellington City Council administration of the 7.5-year window to address identified earthquake prone buildings. The School must continue to operate, and an 18 Teaching Space temporary village has been established on the College site to accommodate the teaching capacity of the Tower. Tower demolition will run concurrently with replacement design. The Hall is also rated as earthquake prone and with significant remedial work envisaged is to be removed in two stages. Hall removal will offer space for the demolition of the main Tower. The adjacent building is to keep operating but is currently reliant on access routes through the Tower for which alternatives are in design for completion during the end of year school break.
Initial asbestos removal has been carried-out, however extensive residual asbestos will need to be removed with the demolition contractor taking the lead.
The estimated project completion date of the overall project is January 2027.
